distribution system that we can tap into. johnson: in the mid-1990s, the water system had just about collapsed. the district had just run into some very dire financial circumstances, and, when those kinds of things happen, the very first thing that goes is maintenance of those things that one does not see. egan: you have hydrants that were manufactured in the 1800s. you have underground pipes, you have underground valves. they get what they call tuberculin built up. you would compare it to a 100-year-old man that has heavy cholesterol. they could be 6- or 8-inch mains, but being 100 years old, they actually may be 2-inch mains. and they reduce the amount of volume of water that's available to us. johnson: there were a number of things that we have had to do in order to get the system back up to an acceptable standard. replacing mains and valves and fire hydrants and other components of the system to ensure that it operates properly. egan: we consider both the underground infrastructure and the above ground assets to be a part of the critical infrastructure of the city. johnson: and if the infr

. and finally, when he supports social security, medicaid and medicare, that's straight lyndon johnson, great society talk. this is a speech in the progressive tradition. at some points it's like the second inaugural of franklin roosevelt where fdr in 1937 said be proud you're an individual but there's also a collective. and you guys mentioned the word people, how often he said, we, the people. but this is, we, the people almost in a howard zimm people of america kind of way. this was about ordinary people fighting for ordinary rights, stonewall has replaced normandy. you know, selma has replaced iwo jima. there wasn't a marshal tone, this was about inclusion. >> he used the term we, and he used the term common creed over and over again throughout the speech. norah o'donnell was listening to the speech down there on the national mall. nor norah? >> and, scott, on that theme the president used the word together some seven times. a word he used just once in 2009. and i think you're right, this was in some ways a civil rights speech. because the president said, our journey is not complete. that'

regulation -- until it happened. consider the civil rights act of 1964. it took johnson's legislative genius to overcome what seemed to be an unshakeable logjam. in our lifetimes we have served enough non-trivial change to impaire that the iron grip of these forces can be shattered and policy can progress. and the debate over the regulation of guns and the balance of civil obligation will command sustained attention from our political leadership, as lobbyists apply their cases. in this unruly mix, universities like ours will discharge a critical role in principled scaffolding for the debate. our scholars have investigated gun violence for the last two decades. we have produced national recognized research to curtail gun violence. we have accumulated a wealth of knowledge and we hope much of it will come to the floor the next few days. we have convened scholars and advocates and want to sue this opportunity to cut through the din of the shrill and incendiary by identifying specific recommendations that evidence- based analysis will work and can be rendered congruent with our legal institution

as cheats, every single time something inside me dies. i watched ben johnson win that 100 meters that time. i loved that for a day. and then it was all crushed. my favorite sport is cricket. i found a huge game turned out to be rigged, and it killed me. and then i heard about lance armstrong, and i thought not him as well. so he was guilty. he did cheat the whole time. nothing is right about that. >> right. and look, a lot of people say everybody in that sport is doing that. i don't know. i don't bike. i'm not going to ever run the tour de france. but you feel badly that there is so much pressure that everybody feels if the other guy is doing it, i have to do it. >> i hate it for my children. i have three teenage poise. -- boys. all play sport, love sport, very competitive. i don't want them thinking the way to win is cheating. >> but you know what? i don't think they see that. i don't think our kids do. i think they see what we want, what we put out. if as a parent you espouse fair play and honesty, in not just sport, but your life, i think that's what they see. you know, look, i think la
to confront this issue while in office, pretty rare. johnson did it in 1968. got a pretty watered down bill. >> harold, there's been a lot of washington analysis about how far any of this is going to go. i, for one, think that we are in -- newtown was an inflexion point, and i do think that the landscape has changed, and i don't know that it's as trite as if you believe in magic, but eugene robinson has an op ed, and i think we are well to listen -- we would do well to listen to eugene's words, which basically amount to don't listening to those that say that president obama's bold plan to reduce gun violence, including an assault weapons ban, has no chance in congress. i seem to recall that health care reform is deemed impossible too until it happened. >> i would agree with you. there is not only a change in how people view guns and particularly n.r.a. members. i was an nra member. i am no longer a member. i just declined membership after a while. newtown didn't do it. there's a culture in the country, as many know, who believe that guns are part of recreation and sport. they take their kid
9, 2004, when johnson, from ken lawrence frank came out with a book called urban sprawl and public health. but the book did this person technical epidemiological meet on the sociological bones we've been arguing about. here's why cities can save us. by far, the greatest aspect of the epidemic river health challenges is the obesity epidemic. not that obesity itself is the problem, that illnesses the city of these two. diabetes now consumes 2% of our gross national product. a child born after to test and has a one in three chance in america of becoming a diabetic. now look at the first generation of american going to live shorter lives than their parents. that's not a huge surprise to you. we've all been talking about the wonders of the point where they started in the 40-ounce service people are drinking. only recently has the argument -- have cities and then comparing diet and physical inactivity. one was called gluttony versus slot. another doctor at the mayo clinic for patients in electronic underwear and measured every motion chemists at a regime, said it that way, started counti
and harass, the johnson targeted political enemies. one of the people i interview in here, mark faller. reagan's ftc chairman who helped dismantle the fairness doctrine. once you had that regulation out of the way it i allowed people like rush limbaugh to get a foothold in and that led to an explosion of consecutive and partisan voices on both sides, mostly on the conservative side. >> host: that was my followup question in regards to from 1920 to today. the predominant-for- -- was there a pattern, left, right, left? >> guest: well, interestingly enough of. one of the things i write about is during the new deal you had the major metropolitan dailies leaping the right. very antifdr, and most of the radio and broadcasting voices were very pro new deal, very pro fdr. kind of have the opposite today. and -- it became sort of a domain for the right, and the late 80s, with rush limbaugh, got his national show in 1988, and then drew from there during the clinton administration, that is one of the best things that happened for talk radio in the sense that it gave lots of material and continued
the civil rights act of 1964. it took lyndon johnson to probably send it forward. he overcame what seems to be an unshakable logjam. in short, in our lifetimes, we have served enough nontrivial policy changes to recognize the inherent iron grip of status quo forces can be shattered and policy can progress. in the next few weeks, we can anticipate and hope that the debate over the regulation of guns and the balance between individual rights and civic obligation will command sustained into serious attention from our political leadership. advocates will mobilize as lobbyists plied their cases. in this unruly mix, universities like ours can and will discharge a critical role in providing principled scaffolding for this debate. here at johns hopkins, our scholars have been investigating the public health effects of gun violence for well over two decades. for the past 17 years, the center for gun aussie and research, envisaged by our colleague, has provided a home for that study areas producing nationally recognized research and recommendations aimed at understanding and curtailing the impact

on the shoulders of people who have been in the white house. president lincoln, kennedy, johnson. the asa stands on the shoulders of the black people who experienced it in the white house. as you noted in your intro, this goes from thosroindividuals who worked to build the white house when washington, d.c., when the country first came into existence, washington dc did not exist. it literally had to be built and it took 10 years. much of that labour from clearing the land, moving the trees and rocks came from african americans and slave labor. the iconic buildings that we know, the capital, the white house, both were built not only by unskilled black labor, people who did just sort of the hard work, but still black labor like carpenters, or african- americans. the first african-american who had engaged in the president's residence whether it was the white house we know now in washington or in the residence of the president george washington when he first went to new york and then when he moved from new york to the president's residence in philadelphia, and both of those residences, washington too
amendment freedom. joining us now is jason johnson, and republican strategist ron bonjean. jason, i want to get your thoughts on this ad. it's powerfupowerful. >> it's powerful and ridiculous. look, the president's children should always be off limits in any sort of political discussion. and the idea that them get prognosis tekted is in some way an indicator of him not caring about other children is ridiculous. but it is the nra, and i don't think it fur thers the debate a all and lowers it to name calling. >> ron, do you think it's ridiculous? >> i think it is probably over the top but extremely effective. people are already talking about it. they're trying to get an effort going regarding protection in schools, having, you know, armed guards in schools. do i think that's possible? the money isn't there for it. but the ad itself is driving news on it. and, yes, it is quite aggressive, but it is effective. everybody is talking about it right now. >> a lot of free advertising here on cnn, i got to admit to that. the ad doesn't just target president obama now. take a look at some other sta
, and lyndon b. johnson in six years as majority leader faced one, and harry reid has faced 361 in the same six-year period. and even if you have the 60 votes to end one, they take up the power of the senate. >> stephanie: you know what is interesting. they just did this study -- this is no surprise to you, but the 112th congress was the most polarized ever. the distance between the two due to record levels between the 111th and 112th even different than the before when they used to take out pistols and shoot each over. >> yes. >> stephanie: i look at poll after poll -- i mean 90% of the american people want background checks for gun -- and you think -- and yet you hear over and over we're probably not going to be able to get any of this gun stuff done. but this is part of the reason right? >> it is part of the reason. why are we talking about reducing food stamps and hunger programs at a time when we can't even close a loophole for a oil company. well, it's a filibuster. dream act, why couldn't we do it? filibuster. and we had 59 votes to close debate, and we needed 6
to president johnson, the aftermath of the '60s assassinations doing much the same thing. martha: that's right. >> this is not out of line with presidential use of power which would seem to be what mr. , senator cruz is trying to argue. and then the second part, you know, the whole idea he is somehow, you know, drunk on this power and he is arrogant, he is cocky after winning an election, it was president bush, the second president burke who said, he had some political capital to expend after his re-election. i think this president feels he has some political capital. and that is in keeping with the idea he just won re-election. >> president said it once. obama said it 18 times. >> i'm sorry. what did you say. martha: sate it one more time. >> bush said it once. obama said it 23 times since he has been reelected. >> okay. >> the executive order stuff comes from the fact he does this pretty often taking out whole sections of immigration law. trying to do cap-and-trade in these ways. he made a lot of moves in this area that have built up and made people go, hey, what the heck is going on here. b
lyndon johnson interpreted his mandate in 1964 as a blank check in vietnam. that is one of the great dangers that confronts presidents. i did not think there is a second term curse. i think there are a number of factors. i think the word mandate should be removed from the white house dictionary. in a polarized area, presidents have a tendency to over interpret. host: let me add, this iconic photograph of president bill clinton, hugging monocle and skin. only the second president -- monica lewinsky. only the second president to face impeachment. guest: we have been told by people who should know that president clinton was willing to use some of the political capital he had. he won a significant, decisive victory over bob dole in 1996. he was prepared to move on entitlements, the so-called third rail of american politics, which would have required him spending a lot of political capital. then when the whole scandal broke, that was no longer a viable option. host: let me share with you this story from "the washington post,." there is one sentence from this article i want you to react to
decade, will there be any legal fallout? let's talk to a guy who is an expert, peter johnson, jr. >> what is the legal fallout? the legal fallout is that they tried to indict him earlier, the federal government walked away from it. the u.s. anti-doping agency is very angry at him. they want to suck his blood even when he wants to fess up to it. he wants to say, i want to go back and be a triathlete. i saw mr. babbitt on this morning who was one of the great triathletes. he was pushing for him to get back into the triathlete competition. the real issue is, is he going to be a victim or hostage of the five law firms that he's paying at this point, or is he going to dare to be great in the same way that he conquered cancer? i beat cancer as well at age 19. i wish i had a role model like him when i was fighting it. he can turn his life around. will he be forgiven? i don't know. i think as a christian, i have an obligation to forgive. but will it be forgotten? what will he do in his life? will he take small steps or will he say yeah, i really screwed up, kids. don't do this. i'm going to chan
. >> steve: joining us is fox news legal analyst peter johnson, jr. we sat in these chairs four years ago. has he kept that promise? >> i think today is a day for new beginning, steve. in some ways he has not kept those promises. this is a at this of great anticipation. it's momentous in our american pageant. it's a day when we say that common ground is the most important part of our lives. common ground, though, means yielding ground. common ground doesn't merely mean allowing people to come sit with you on your side. you need to say, i'm going to give up something in exchange for your participation in the process. i think that's what a lot of americans are hoping for today in this speech. i think a successful inaugural speech is measured by its ability to convince a president's detractors, to convince a president's opponents that they are welcome, that they are part of the process, that they are part of this incredible country. and i hope that he is successful in doing that today on this important day. >> steve: you're not alone. people want stuff done, but if you look at what we've hea
lyndon johnson's legislative genius to process forward, beat back resistance and over, what seem to be an unshakable logjam. in short, in our lifetime we observed enough nontrivial policy change to recognize that the iron grip of static coal forces can be shattered and policy can progress. in the next few weeks we can anticipate and hope that the debate over the effect of regulation of guns and the appropriate balance between individual rights and civic obligations will command sustained and serious attention from our political leadership. advocates will mobilize as lobbyists apply to cases, and politicians will fight over the issues. we know that. and in this unruly mix, universities like ours can and will discharge a critical role providing principle holdings for this debate. here at johns hopkins, our scholars have been investigating the public health affects of gun violence for well over two decades. for the past 17 years, the center for gun policy and research, as visited by our colleague him has provided a home for the study, producing nationally recognized research and rec
